Romaine. Vanity. September 25th , 2017.
Bathroom vanities seem to be the newest "it" item in bathroom re-design and remodeling. Blending the elements of both form and functionality, these easy-to-install appliances instantly add sophistication and elegance to any bathroom. Installing a vanity will make your bathroom seem warmer and more inviting than ever before. When it comes to selecting a bathroom vanity, you have quite a lot of options. Vanities are often contemporary or traditional in design, respectively yielding a sleek, clean, and polished look or a more rustic, wamer, and cozy personality. While most vanity cabinets are manufactured in wood, ranging from oak and mahogany to cherry and teak, some are built from quality metals like stainless steel or bronzed copper plate. As far as countertops go, you have a nearly limitless selection: tempered glass, steel, copper, sealed zebra wood, granite, onyx, marble, and porcelain, to name a few. The styles and colors vary, as well. But perhaps you arent interested in previously constructed bathroom vanities? Maybe you want a more personal design, perhaps one that reflects your personality a bit more clearly.
Todays generation may admire Victorian or Gothic designs in cinemas or on the pages of fashion magazines, but for their own home, they always choose the contemporary style. The shape of the bathroom too is important in choosing a vanity. The bathroom may be comparatively small, but if there is an odd corner, which can accommodate fairly big vanity, you should make use of it. However, you can do that only if the plumbing line can be extended to that corner. However, few modern bathrooms are oddly shaped or have odd corners. Most of them are a clean square or a rectangle. In such scenario, such consideration does not apply. Choose the material used in manufacturing the vanities with care. Wood is a traditional material, but today glass bathroom vanities are becoming very popular. Although glass looks delicate, thanks to the technological up gradations, they are no longer that fragile.
Whatever type of vanity top you choose from one of the big box suppliers, the tops that you can take with you are fairly limited and conventional in appearance and configuration. However, those retailers always have a wide selection of vanity tops from various manufacturers that can be custom ordered. Prices are reasonable and you can choose from a wide variety of sink shapes and placements in the top. If youre re-doing an older house or simply prefer a traditional built-in vanity, this is an excellent way to add a little pop to your bathroom while maintaining a traditional appearance. Another thing to consider, if youre planning on doing it yourself, is the relative difficulty of connecting the supply lines and the drain. When it comes to modern sink and faucet installation, it has gotten simpler for do-it-yourselfers to make the necessary connections. The problem lies in access to the connecting points. With built-in vanity bases, as well as some of the fine furniture versions and the occasional free-standing ones, youre going to wind up with your head stuck in a cabinet, trying to thread a nut in a hard to reach area.
As antique bathroom vanities are designed from timber woods like cherry, walnut, teak and mahogany they look artistic. Brass and copper are applied especially in knobs and handles. In some occasions they are for decoration. Though transitional vanities are not designed with that craftiness but they dont lack simplified features. Either granite or marble are used in most of them in countertop. These preventive steps are to assure regular splash of water doesnt damage them. Features of granite are countless as they are sturdy to bear all types of scratch and stain. Natural color of marbles makes them unique with variation but create charm. Added advantage with them is sufficient storage space of theirs that you see in drawers and closed shelves that appeal.
Deciding on a built-in vanity is a two-stage process. First, you choose the vanity base. Walk into any home remodeling center and you will find rows of stock vanity bases bolted to the wall, ready to take home. There are variations in style, including length, height, number and placement of doors and drawers, but thats about it. If you have an older, traditional home, this style is most likely your best choice. Now that you have your vanity base selected, theres still something missing...the vanity top. Most of the time, the vanity top will be made from cultured marble, ceramic, or granite, and usually the sink (or basin or vessel, depending on the manufacturers description) will be an integral part of the top, forming a one-piece unit that will not leak. In some cases, a vanity top will have a cut-out (or cut-outs in the case of a double vanity) to allow the basin (or basins) to drop in.
